First we go around the marshes near Belen village, on foot. Then, we cross the Brus Lagoon by boat up to a Caribbean pine forest populated by a great number of diverse psitacins (parrot, parraquet, etc.) and other attractive bird species common in the gallery forest. At the farming territories, where the primary ecosystem has already been deeply modified, we will be nicely surprised by the interesting bird fauna of diverse colors and shapes that live in this transitional zone, such as fly catchers, trogons, motmots, toucans, tanagers, kingfishers, etc.

A walk along the beach will give us the opportunity to watch different marine birds (pelicans, sandpipers, ibises, frigate birds, roseate spoonbills, storks, etc.) while a boat trip upstream in the Platano River will allow us to discover even more examples of this beautiful tropical fauna such as jacamars, oropendolas, macaws and other fascinating creatures of this particular habitat. In our journey we shall also have a good chance to interact with the interesting native people of this region.
